“The overall changes in the tournament came in the interest of the HHC's strategic objective,” said Ms. Suad Ibrahim. “We are delighted to be partners in the revival and dissemination of the social heritage of the sport of falconry.”

Professionalism
Ahmed Al Rumaithi, who started his participation in the General Public categories since the first day, said: “The season is characterized by flexibility, speed and professionalism. I am a regular participant in the Fazza Falconry Championship. UAE has become the leader in the preservation of this heritage sport. Hats off to the organizing committee who has always taken into account the needs of the participants which has been reflected in terms of performance. For me, electronic preparation is the most important development. The early registration before the start, makes up better prepared,” he said.

Developments
Multiple winner Khaled Salem Al Hajiri was pleased to see the developments in the Fazza Championship for Falconry in the ‘Year of Zayed'. 

“These championships encourages us to breed falcons and practice this hobby. We had several entries in the General Public category and thank God we won first place. The changes in the tournament format has made competition stronger and chances of winning more because of various disciplines,” he said.
Briton Harry Garland also echoed the same sentiments regarding the new format of this championship. “I love the new format. It is very professional. There are more people participating and there are more chances of winning. Even the not so top falcons are able to compete for the Trophy or Cash. Not everyone has to go for the Car. This year I have seen more people entering Cash race than Car race. It's a very interesting format,” he said. 

Sponsors
The official sponsors of Hamdan Bin Mohammed Heritage Center are: Al Tayer Motors Land Rover, Dubai Airports, AW Rostamani (Arabian Automobiles), Global Village and Al Oula radio station.
